Thanks, Dennis.

Photography: 100 percent art, 100 percent technical. It takes a photographer to blend them into an image.

​Film: That tangible image that you can see and hold.

Hope when they put it back together they didn't have any left over parts.  :blink:  :P

I have a few thoughts on this:

1) OMG ... THEY JUST TRASHED A D850!!! :lol:

2) This does not look like an easy repair camera. Tons of ribbon cables and precise solder joints. So, in a repair that doesn't quite work, how many times can you repair this camera before the repair becomes part and parcel of the problem?

Call it Repair Fatigue

3) Hard to Calibrate after disassembled? Joy! Add to the repair fun.

4) Stay away from salt water.... Check. Isn't most of the world covered by salt water?

5) Comes apart nicely, technology is truly amazing. But this also screams of .... EXPENSIVE TO REPAIR AFTER WARRANTY!

Thanks for the link, Dennis.

Thanks for the link, Dennis.

 

I particularly agree with Jim's comment about spare parts being left over; and Art's comment about "They just trashed a D850".  <_<

 

Art's comments about repair costs make me wonder if an entry-level DX body might be cheaper than the cost of repairing this beast?  :rolleyes:
